Britney Scrubs Up to Get "Amy" On-Air

1/23/2009 2:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsBritney Spears is so clever -- too clever in fact -- and her lyrics are keeping her off the air in some of the biggest radio markets.

Brit's latest single, "If U Seek Amy," has to be cleaned up, says NYC's Z100, if it wants to get airtime. For those who aren't aware, if you say the song's chorus real fast, it sounds like -- well, here's an explanation. "We plan to play an edited, super-clean version," says an exec from Z100. Unclear what the new "Amy" will sound like, but Jive Records says it's got a scrubbed version ready.

Some stations around the country already have played "If U Seek Amy" in its unaltered form.

SIGH...
The s**t that passes as music these days.
These kids have no brains to actually put some thought into a song.
All they have to do is strip down, wiggle and groan and they have a 'hit' single.
Go figure, whats next?

Yeah, I had to listen to it then read the lyrics myself to hear what was being said - All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy (now say it fast and like this ifuseekamy). Sounds like - are begging to f*ck me.

Research both before you condem, there are zealots on both sides    

I like it. I've heard a lot worse in M&Ms music (Shake that !ss for me). She's got edge and attitude in this song.

That is pretty funny! hey, you gotta admit whoever did write it was pretty clever in sneaking that in there. It shouldn't be played on air though unless it is cleaned up, there are a lot of young girls out there who listen to her music and that doesn't set the right example for them.

Oh Pul-leeze! April Wine had If You See Kay and John Lennon had The King of Fuh back in the 70s. Somehow, the world kept spinning and little white trash children grew up just fine.

Oh give me a BREAK! There's are SO many other songs out there that have been played on the radio that are far worse. i.e. Any song ever written or sang by Eminem? I rather a hidden lyric like "If U seek Amy (F U C K me)" be played on the radio (And half of the people listening to it wont even get it anyways..) rather than straight up homophobic violent lyrics. I think it's a great song, and I cant wait to hear it out at the club!

Britney has no career outside of making a disgusting pig of herself.
She needs to quit music and go into the porn industry, which is her real talent.

She makes a “I am so changed” come back and then uses this tasteless crap on her comeback album? She wants to be seen as a mature, loving and caring mother but she had her kids in the audience on the GMA special she did for her birthday dressed half naked, shaking her boobs and ass. I'm sorry but you just don't entertain your child in that manner. She's an idiot and a typical victim of an industry that cares nothing about her and knows her IQ can barely hold her up. If she hadn't tried to say she changed and she oh-so-loves her children and wants to be a good mother, I couldn't care less but clearly this blatantly contradicts that notion. How childish anyway! This sounds like something a 6th grader would be entertained by, DUMB!

someone has too much time on their hands..

if the people complaining and with nothing to to do did something
constructive and worried less about britney there may be less problems in the world.

for now    

Isn't it great that the U.S. military can invade nations and kill millions of people
but beautiful Britney is criticized for lyrics that some uptight people think are bad?
